[SOLVED] CSS 'display' property set to 'none' question

I ran my site into this spam detector:


and got loads of messages saying: "Invisible text found. Method(s): CSS 'display' property set to 'none'.
Invisibility purpose: Impossible to say.

The address I put in was: pinefurnitureonline.co.uk

It seems to indicate that the search engines are seeing invisible text which may be considered a spamming technique. Is it possible to change the code anywhere to stop this happening? It seems to be mainly page titles and category titles i the sidebar widget which it is flagging up so maybe the code is on those, but I haven't a clue what I'm looking for?

Thanks, Bob

well you could go thru the css.php and remove them. From what I can tell, it's mostly used in the tables using the 'empty' pseudo class so if something is empty, it hides it.

Cheers for that, juggledad. I wasn't sure if it was something important or not for the search engines. Thanks
